If it wasn't the winter season, I'd venture out there on a road trip...but Cleveland in the beginning of March can be pretty darn cold and snowy...

I guess it pretty well assures us that there are no Raspberries shows planned anytime soon, since for now, 3/4 of the band will be focused on The Choir show (and rightfully so).

We better get reports back quickly on the 4th of March, I'd be real curious to see if Mr C joins them!!!

It would be great to see Eric walk on stage but not at the end of the show. Thoughts; What band did Eric ALWAYS want to be in ? I don't think that there is anything that could keep Eric home that night or off the stage if he is in the audience. How many songs did the Choir actually write and record ? They will need a few more to fill the bill,with maybe some Berry songs ? What ONE person after Wally,Jim, and Dave is not in the Choir. The Raspberries/Choir memebers are almost interchangable. You don't have to be Mannix to figure this one out. I'd say odds are good that we see a "special guest" on a very special night.

It all started with Its Cold Outside. Thanks Dan for writtng such a great song that STILL to this day sends shivers down our back bones !
